Re: Ramp for pockets

Thomas,

I believe that Kyle is aware of those settings, but my interpretation is that he would like a separate set of parameters for the "area clearance part" of the Pocketing operation.

Re: HardWare Holes

Nicholas, After modifying the pattern in the Hardware Hole Editor , did you "reapply" the doors? If not, the old pattern is saved with that cabinet and the "disk copy" is not considered in any rebuild. Contact Jim here at CNC Automation if you need some assistance. CNC Automation...

Re: Added option to import DXF polylines as lines or as arcs (Enhanced)

Here is an example of a polyline created with arc and line segments. Note: You need a panel of x=42, y=60.

Re: Added option to import DXF polylines as lines or as arcs (Enhanced)

The polyline has to be originally created with line and arc segments. A "spline" like you have illustrated will be broken into small lines as there are no original arc entities which define it.

Re: Using the f/x editor

carmen,

I just want to point out that I was assuming a "drawer stretcher" sort of application. The same sort of thing could be done when applied to the "Front Offset".

Re: Order of Drilling Stacked Holes

Nat, I believe that no matter what the setting for " Do Drills First " is, it only affects the order of operations within each part (drill, dado, pocket, etc). OUTLINE s are ALWAYS * performed last. (*The exception to this is if "Do Profiling Last" is checked. This only applies t...

Re: today's q-core CN update

PLUNGE is only an option for the CENTERLINE layer. START is an option for CENTERLINE , CHAIN COMPIN/OUT and I believe OUTLINE . Might be applicable to POCKET (for the start of the clean-up pass.). ( Not much use with DRILL or DADO .) I do not believe that Thermwood ever intended or marketed the Lay...
